Xe-LP GPU Performance: Deus Ex Mankind Divided

Deus Ex is a franchise with a wide level of popularity. Despite the Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (DEMD) version being released in 2016, it has often been heralded as a game that taxes the CPU. It uses the Dawn Engine to create a very complex first-person action game with science-fiction based weapons and interfaces. The game combines first-person, stealth, and role-playing elements, with the game set in Prague, dealing with themes of transhumanism, conspiracy theories, and a cyberpunk future. The game allows the player to select their own path (stealth, gun-toting maniac) and offers multiple solutions to its puzzles.

DEMD has an in-game benchmark, an on-rails look around an environment showcasing some of the game’s most stunning effects, such as lighting, texturing, and others. Even in 2020, it’s still an impressive graphical showcase when everything is jumped up to the max.

At the minimum settings, all of the integrated graphics are easily playable, with AMD winning at 15 W but the 28 W Tiger Lake goes a bit above that, within reaching distance of the desktop APU. At a more regular 1080p Maximum, the 20 FPS is perhaps a bit too slow for regular gameplay.

    The Sardine oil and Tiger King references make it hard for an international reader to actually make sense of content here. I am not sure who the target audience is for this website but I would kindly request you not to use very culture specific references on a technology website. Reply

    It is subjective, but I think it fun and I'm an international reader. Without these references the article would be too dry. I think one can still get 100% technical detail and not knowing the puns. Reply

    Seconded. Reply

    This is criminal. They are going to sell a CPU of the same model and allow OEM's to have it perform vastly different without disclosing the actual performance? What's next, bring back the PR rating? Reply

    To be fair, this isn't new. Intel CPUs have differed significantly in performance depending on cooling implementation on the final product for a while, and AMD have similar issues now. Reply

    How new this is is less important than the fact that it's a scam. Reply

    It's relevant when someone's talking about it like it's a new problem..? Reply

    Clock for clock comparison is useless

    The fact that Tiger Lake beats Ice Lake at same power means than Tiger Lake is superior out of the two. Period

    Also iGPU performance boost is huge. It beats 65w APU in some cases. But there is some inconsistency because some cases it does not beat 15w APU. It might be because of drivers ??!

    Damn, willow cove is actually lower ipc vs sunny??? Wow, that was unexpected! Intel needs to improve the ipc of the next gen core massively if they want to stay on top. I know the rumours say 50% better than skylake but even that, if it will happen will not be sufficient. Reply

    Willow cove has ~20% better IPC than Zen2. Golden Cove is rumored to add another 25% taking the lead to ~45% by mid 2021. Will Zen3 be able to close the 45% IPC deficit? AMD says no. By their own best case projection they expect 15% IPC. That would pul Zen3 at a 30% IPC deficit vs Golden Cove. As you can see the IPC deficit keeps widening. Reply
